Transom door in a Cal. 34LRC

I am seriously considering purchasing a 34' LRC. *This boat does not have a transom door, which my wife would really like since she probably spends as much time in the water as on the water. *I see a door was an option when the boat was new. *It doesn't look like a bad job to cut a door into the transom once you get past the taking a saw to the boat. *Measure twice, cut once, don't screw up. * Has anybody done this? *Does anybody have pictures of how the factory door was done? *Side opening doors would be nice as well. *I haven't seen any I don't think. *are there any structural considerations? *I would want a generous radius in the bottom corners to distribute stress . *The door would be made from the plug perhaps foam filled, and glassed on the jambs. *THANKS *for your ideas.

*If you saw carefully you will already have 75 percent of your door ready to install.
